Meet & Greet 

Our team assembled in Clearwater, Florida on Monday, February 26, 2018. Everyone quickly got to know each other and then it was time to load up all the luggage and freight and drive down to Ft Pierce, Florida to Missionaries Flights International to have it all weighed and loaded on the plane. A "last supper" was shared at the Cracker Barrel and it was back to the hotel with lights out early! Wake up call comes early!!

FLYING WITH MISSIONARIES FLIGHT INTERNATIONAL

I had a few minutes to interview Kenny who is a pilot with Missionary Flights International.

He gives a brief overview of what their ministry entails. I've been flying with them since 2008.

Day 1 - Tuesday - Our team left Missionary Flights International in Fort Pierce, Florida, on a 1943 DC3 cargo plane at 7 am with 1200 pounds of freight. We landed in Cap Haitian to clear customs then a short 12-minute flight to Pignon were we landed in a cow pasture! We were greeted by our team.  Once all the freight was unloaded and loaded, we had a long, bumpy right to the HAFF guesthouse in Bohoc.

We finally arrived at the HAFF guesthouse in Bohoc. It has no running water and no indoor toilet. After a tour of the 40 acre compound, we rested a bit and then had dinner while debriefing with Haitian Hope. Later, the team prepared for the next day by working on their VBS lessons and Gail Bain prepared her lessons for the next day English class. Check out all the pictures by clicking on the picture.

DAY 2 - Mission Trip - Haiti

VBS, Evangelism, Shade House, Prayer Walks, Store,  Food Basket Assembly & Give-away

Day 2 - Wednesday - The day was off to a great start!! After breakfast, we loaded up in the rental truck and "Big Red."Big Red for God is a three-wheeled motorcycle that was generously donated to Psalm139LOVE for their work in Haiti. We drove to Monac where we had a very busy and fun-filled day. First stop, Gemel Bakery to buy some freshly baked bread.Love-a-Child referred Ben and Ron to our team to build a shade house for the Gras Li (His Grace) Garden in Monac (the community garden that Amanda and Paul previously started to feed the malnourished children.) So they got started on that project!Team Member Gail and her translator Diranot taught English while Team Members Yvonne, Cindy and Sandy taught the VBS. The theme was ARMOR OF GOD to the children.Of course it was not all work and no play.....Angie and I made PBJ sandwiches and Koolaid for the kids. What a treat that was! Then we blew bubbles, painted fingernails, played games and just loved on every child we could for as long as we could❤ We went on prayer walks through the community handing out tracts and solar audio Bibles as well as praying over families who had special requests. The one young woman we visited and gave an audio Bible to lived in a one-room house with a few children. Their home was destroyed in the earthquake so she moved up to this area but her husband was not able to find work so he’s in Port Au Prince but can’t work because he burned his arm. We also gave her a goat for milk for the children and she can later breed the Nanny to be able to sell the off-springs at the market or trade for food. We also visited one home that had a sugar cane mill that was making syrup. Then time to leave came too soon. We visited Madam Gabrielle's store and purchased rice, beans, oil, butter, garlic and onions to make food baskets.

After dinner at the guesthouse, we assembled several of the food baskets to distribute to families. For example, one family Gail Bain prayed over had a very young girl maybe 14 that told us her mother had died leaving her and her 8 younger siblings. She told us her father was looking for work and it was very hard to get enough food for her family. These stories sure do tug on your heartstrings. Today many souls were won for His kingdom in Heaven.....TODAY WAS A GREAT DAY!!!!❤
